Netspeed?

By old canberran - 4 June 2009 23

Does anyone have an update on the status of Netspeed?

I tried to get my mail and also check their web site this morning but to no avail. We had a thread earlier about Brian Morris and his financial problems so I’m thinking maybe they have shut down?

Just because no one has mentioned it yet, I quite like Internode…

I can’t believe Telstra has actually had a recommendation…

Yeah I am internode too. Good service, competitive price and loads of good un-metered content.

Telsra – biggest penny pinching rip off merchants ever to grace the telecommunications sector. (I don’t like Telstra …. Shhhh)

They still hound me after I left them …. stalking me, I tell ya.

Internode has been a revalation, great service, great speeds, not the cheapest downloadwise, but I heartily reccommend them.

ON NO ACCOUNT sign up with Virgin broadband, they are the worse ISP I have ever encountered in 20 years of online life here and in the UK.

Dear OP: Poor as the TransACT-based ISPs’ service might be; instead of jumping to wild conclusions just because you can’t reach one of their nameservers, try diagnosing the problem a little. You know, looking at the lights on your router or it’s statistics webpage, doing a traceroute from your PC etc. Tracerouting without resolving names (-d windows, -n unix) to a random address (say, 4.4.4.4) would have clearly shown Internet connectivity.
.. then check Whirlpool.

I assume this comment is directed to me. FYI netspeed is not my broadband ISP. I have been with Netspeed for 10 years and still maintain an email address with them and also an infrequently used dial up account. I have never heard of Whirlpool but even if I had, Brian’s comment was made after my original post, and as there had been a discussion here previously, I asked a simple question and I got a simple answer. Thanks for your suggestions anyway I’ll bear it in mind for future reference.

Thanks Peter. I should have waited half an hour. All seems OK now. Apologies for my unnecessary post but it wouldn’t surprise me if they do have problems.

np old canberran. There hasn’t been any comment by brian on whirlpool yet – i wonder if he knows what happened.

So who would you recommend these days?

I will say telstra, as I use them, both home and work. However, If you are looking for a good TRANSACT connect, go to Velocity.

they aren’t out of business, I can see the lights on in their office. Whirlpool forums have a thread reporting an issue this morning, looks as if it hit at midnight. some people are back online and OK.
